Spokesperson

"PGGM is about pension and sustainability. That is clearly illustrated in the way we manage capital. We put lots of energy in investing with measurable impact – generating financial returns in combination with solutions for big global problems like climate, or the availability of enough food or health care. We’re an engaged and active shareholder and we try to incentivize corporations to improve on their sustainability. That takes patience and endurance, but it pays off. It is our, and therefore my mission to take care of the interests of millions of Dutch pension fund participants in a very thoughtful way."
